I am now at the 16 day mark and I don’t really feel much discomfort if at all in the genital area. I did have loss of appetite for a while and a weird taste in my mouth which I was associating with having to take the doxycycline by emptying the capsule due to trouble swallowing pills and with all the stress I have been dealing with. I informed my urologist of the loss of appetite which he also attributed to my guilt and the medication but just wanted to make you aware of that as well. I have done extensive research as this encounter has been eating me alive and was wondering if you think it’s possible it could be either balanitis or trichomoniasis ? Are there any other steps I can take to start easing my mind ?
